Set on the eastern edge of Scotland’s spectacular Cairngorms National Park, Glen Tanar spans 25,000 acres of breathtaking Highland scenery.
From rugged heather moorland to towering Caledonian pine forests, from the winding River Tanar to the majestic waters of the River Dee, this working Highland estate has been responsibly cared for by four generations of the Coats family since 1905.
We want you to enjoy this beautiful glen whatever the occasion, from weddings and holidays to hill walking, salmon fishing and wildlife watching. And we promise a warm welcome.
Glen Tanar: The Perfect Highland Escape
Latest news from the estate
We had the most wonderful stay on the Glen Tanar. The accommodation was a perfect base for our family wedding which was being held in Aboyne. The cottages could not have been more beautifully designed and decorated. It was like a very very luxurious and spacious home from home.Jill McClure
Glen Tanar is the perfect place for a family holiday. We’ve been coming here on spring, summer and autumn breaks for the past few years as there is so much for our eight city-dwelling grandchildren to enjoy: splashing in the burn, pony rides, woodland walks, nature hunts, barbeques, and evening picnics round the campfire at the Visitor Centre.Graeme Roberts
During our wonderful stays at Glen Tanar we have always experienced a very high level of customer care. In our dealings with staff, we have always found them to be very helpful, friendly and well informed. Glen Tanar is indeed a first class location to decompress, relax, and enjoy stunning Royal Deeside.Mike & Lysanne Watt
I have travelled extensively in the UK and abroad photographing wildlife. The people of Glen Tanar Estate provide an outstanding level of service and willingness to help. I have found none better anywhere else. Above all, they understand, value and care for their wildlife. They cater for all types of photographer and the experience is first class from booking to completion.Andy Hayes
I would like to say how much we enjoyed the Land Rover Safari that we took during our stay last year. Thanks to Mike's knowledge, we enjoyed learning about the history of the glen, also about the wonderful wildlife, flora and fauna that live here.Christine Gregory
On our Land Rover Safari we saw parts of Glen Tanar few get to see, learned so much about the history, the environment, the flora and the fauna, all in the expert and capable hands of our driver and guide Mike. The 3 hours passed so quickly we could very easily do a repeat trip and enjoy it just as much. If you love the hills, you will love this way of seeing them.David Gair
Once again thank you for a very nice week with some really good stalking.Christian Sorensen
